Small Is Average

It's long been accepted that the 'average' size of a man's penis is around six inches. But now new research has shown that this estimate is way out! Actually the average length of an erect penis is about 5 inches.

This might come as a huge relief to a lot of guys, and give some others a boost in knowing that they're 'above average'. The length of the average flaccid penis is around 3.6 inches.

The figure was arrived at after an analysis of 17 previous studies involving over 15,000 men. The findings may be helpful to doctors who are faced with men concerned about the size of their manhood. Some men are so distressed with the size of their penis they may even be diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

Until now there hasn't been a formal systematic review of penile size and no attempts to create a graph that depicts the distribution size. Doctors hope that this new research and the resultant 'graph' will help to reassure men that their penis size is within the 'normal' range.

There's often controversy about whether women think penis size matters. We have to say that amongst the women here at Leeds Escorts the general opinion was that size doesn't matter, it's how you use it!
